Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer for both sexes in the general population. Squamous cell carcinoma is defined as "a malignant epithelial neoplasm exhibiting squamous differentiation as characterized by the formation of keratin and/ or the presence of intercellular bridges" (Pindborg et al., 1977).[1] It is the most common neoplasm of the oral cavity. We present a case of oral SCC emphasizing on the invasive nature of the lesion and importance of correct biosy and histopathological examination.
